Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl Odds 2023

Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl Odds 2023

The Vikings had reason to expect some improvement in 2022. Mike Zimmer’s brand had become stale, and the arrival of Sean McVay assistant Kevin O’Connell brought the promise of an improved offense. There were still questions on the defensive side of the ball, particularly at the cornerback position, but a healthy Danielle Hunter and Za’Darius Smith inspired confidence that the pass-rush unit would be one of the NFL’s most productive.

Still, Minnesota wasn’t favored to win the NFC North. If you took the Vikings to win the division before the season, you’ve been hugely rewarded. What about Minnesota’s Super Bowl odds? At this point, the Vikings have the seventh-best odds to win the Super Bowl despite being tied for the NFL’s second-best record.

The Vikings have improved their Super Bowl odds since the start of the season, but they’re still decisively behind a trio of favorites in the NFC.

Minnesota Vikings Odds Analysis

The Vikings are cruising to an NFC North title despite not even entering the season as the favorite in the division. With losses only to two top NFC contenders and a rising Lions team, Minnesota has won where it would’ve lost in the past under Mike Zimmer. That’s a great sign, but for many fans, the jury is still out on this Vikings team. Why? They routinely play close games.

Winning close games is a skill, and the Vikings should be commended for that, but it’s hard to believe they can get away with it consistently in the playoffs. Blowout losses at the hands of the Eagles and Cowboys, two teams they might have to face to get out of the NFC, don’t inspire much confidence, either.
On the other hand, Minnesota’s offense is legitimately good. Even in a late-season loss to the Lions, Kirk Cousins managed to throw for 425 yards. Justin Jefferson has willed the Vikings to wins on his own, including one in Buffalo, and he’s the rightful favorite to win Offensive Player of the Year.
There’s something about the Vikings that’s different this year. They simply do not quit. The offense is relentless, and the confidence they’re playing with is a welcomed sight after an uninspiring final two seasons under Zimmer. Be careful not to underestimate that kind of confidence in the playoffs, considering Joe Burrow and the Bengals had a similar mentality heading into the playoffs last season.
The Vikings aren’t likely to win the Super Bowl, but at +2000, there’s some value here – especially if they end up playing their first two playoff games at home.
